I said it after the Toronto series, and I'll say it now. Chara is playing like he's old, slow and tired. Nothing like his previously dominant self. He still has a stick that's like 16 feet long, but that's his only real advantage anymore.
If he was on the Rangers people would be jumping to his defense here, speculating he must be hurt...that's how far below his normal level he's been playing.
Toronto completely marginalized Chara, and we're starting to do it too. Hopefully not too late.
He was the culprit on 2 of our goals, doesn't like to be hit hard and knocked down, which Kreids and Boyle have done this series
Do not like the fact that Saturday's game in on NBCSN.
Rangers are better on CNBC and MSG.
Do you think the performance of the team is in any way affected by the network broadcasting the game? If they haven't fared well on NBCSN I'm thinking it's because they didn't play well during those days. Play better and the result will be better.
